HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A local physician and alumnus, Scott E. Moore, M.D., and his wife, Rebecca, have established an endowed scholarship with the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine to assist aspiring physicians from the southern coalfields of West Virginia.

Scott  Moore is a native of Matewan, West Virginia, and a graduate of Matewan High School and Alice Lloyd College in Pippa Passes, Kentucky. He earned his Doctor of Medicine from the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine in 2004. He completed his residency at the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts, and is a diagnostic radiologist in Ashland, Kentucky.

”I am truly grateful for the outstanding education, mentoring and support the School of Medicine provided,” Scott Moore said. “With this scholarship, I hope to assist, encourage and inspire our future physician leaders. So much has been given to me along the way. I’m happy and very blessed to be able to help.”

The Dr. Scott E. Moore Scholarship is designated for entering first-year medical students from Mingo County, West Virginia.
